Video: Boston ties Game 1 with two goals in under four minutes

May 1, 2014, 9:53 PM EDT

Hey, remember when we wrote how Carey Price was standing on his head?

Well that was like 28 minutes ago. Things change.

The Boston Bruins came out for the third period with a mission, scoring two goals on their first three shots after Price had stopped 22 through the first two periods.

Reilly Smith got things started at the 2:44 mark with a seeing-eye shot, beating Price for his second marker of the postseason:

Less than four minutes later, rookie d-man Torey Krug scored his second of the playoffs, converting Milan Lucic‘s pass to even the score at two:

That Boston was able to rally so effectively shouldn’t come as that big a surprise. The B’s led the NHL in third-period goals this year, with 106, and kept that going in the opening round against Detroit by scoring five third-period goals in the series win.

    Halford you are doing God’s work here. Brough got the night off for calling the first round the best? Bruins have been a half step off all game or this isn’t even close.

    Bruins will be a half step off all series since they’re playing Montreal

    If they hit 1/10 of the open nets, wide shots or posts they’ve missed, this game isn’t even close.

      Yah, this is ridiculous.

      Glen Wesley has some company.

    how many times is the strategy of tucking your tail in between your legs to kill off a game going to backfire until people start realizing that the best defense is to have the puck in the offensive zone?

      I think MTL heard you.

    All I can think of when they say Gorges’ name is Georgous George from Snatch.
